Did you read the newer one by Ann Patchett? I can't remember whether we talked about it because you were going to read it or had already read it? I'm in two book groups - one did Bel Canto recently and the other did State of Wonder. I'm curious to hear your opinions.

Interesting list. My book club keeps choosing books I've already read.
